You may have to go to an independent butcher or meat shop to get a single rib. The big stores are shifting to prepackaged meat and can’t open them and do cut requests anymore;-/ It may be pricey, but if it’s just for the two of you, this is great for a special occasion which we all spend extra on. One clue, if you go to the butcher close to closing time, you’ll get a better deal as they want to get rid of cut meat at the end of the day…you may even be able to score more and get it cut as you desire!
Prime Rib for Two
1 rib of prime beef roast (about 2 pounds)
1 tbs olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Rub the rib with olive oil. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the rib.
Cook on one side until it is browned and releases easily, about 2-3 minutes. Turn and cook until browned on the second side, about 2 minutes longer.
While the rib is searing, mash the garlic with salt and pepper to form a paste. When the rib is browned, using a knife spread the garlic paste over the meat.
Place in a small roasting pan.
Roast for 30-35 minutes until the internal temperature registers 145 degrees F for medium, and 155 degrees F for well done. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes, then slice to serve.
